Serving In Mission USA reported on Tuesday that one of its missionary doctors in Liberia has tested positive for the Ebola virus.
The American doctor was treating obstetrics patients at SIM’s ELWA hospital in Monrovia. He was not treating Ebola patients in EWLA’s Ebola isolation unit, a facility separate from the main hospital on the mission organization’s 136-acre campus. According to SIM, it is not yet known how the doctor contracted the virus specifically.
The doctor immediately isolated himself. SIM said he is doing well and is in good spirits.
"My heart was deeply saddened, but my faith was not shaken, when I learned another of our missionary doctors contracted Ebola," said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA.
SIM USA will hold a press conference at its Charlotte headquarters on Wednesday.
Last month two Americans, including one from SIM, were evacuated to the United States for treatment after contracting Ebola in Liberia.
The two received an experimental drug known as ZMapp and recovered from Ebola. The manufacturer says it has run out of supplies of the drug and it will take months to produce more.
More than 1,500 people have died across West Africa from Ebola.
